The height can be up to 180 cm, the leaves are approximately 2 cm wide and 90 cm long. Lemongrass has a sour, fresh and lemon-like taste and is a true seasoning. You can finely chop the lower thick part of the stem and add it to your dishes. In Curacao, lemongrass is used by young and old for colds, fever, but is also drunk as a natural freshener. Before you drink the tea, it must be sieved, because the leaves have small, fine spines. You can drink the tea both hot and cold. You can find lemongrass herbal tea at our store.
